SIM-University of Manchester held its MSc International Healthcare Leadership residential workshop from 16 to 19 April 2018. The residential workshop themed ‘Applied Leadership Challenge' drew 20 participants from different professions such as doctors, staff nurses, pharmacists, business managers and directors.

The workshop was conducted by Dr Stephen Brookes, Programme Director for MSc International Healthcare Leadership Programme, Alliance Manchester Business School and Dr Judit Csiszar, Programme Co-Director for MSc International Healthcare Leadership Programme, Alliance Manchester Business School. They shared their experiences and answered questions that helped participants tackle the challenges that they face in their professional lives.

The participants enjoyed a vibrant discussion during a live webinar session at the workshop with Dr Graham Harrison, WHO Regional Officer on ‘Pandemics Preparedness'. They also had the opportunity to interact, plan and share their ideas with one another on their ideal healthcare systems during group discussions. The participants walked away from the workshop having gained valuable knowledge.

“The residential workshop has been an enjoyable experience as I got to meet and interact with different classmates and lecturers who come from similar backgrounds,” said Ivy Law, Manager of NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine.

“The professors who taught us have provided very good inputs on strategies that we should adopt as healthcare leaders. It was also great to hear from various industry players who put things into perspective and helped us understand the ‘whys' behind different policies. The ‘Four Golden Threads' also allowed us to gain an in-depth understanding of how everything that is done in our day-to-day roles is interconnected and contributes to the broader healthcare landscape,” said Ivy Law, Manager of NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine.

The next residential workshop will take place from 26 to 29 November 2018.
